DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Picks (5/3/16): NBA DFS Advice

How to break down the Chris Bosh/Miami Heat saga? On one side, you have a seasoned veteran who has helped win two championships and desperately wants to play with his team in their quest for a third. On the other side, the team- who desperately and equally want him to play- has not and most... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Baseball Lineup Picks (5/2/16): MLB DFS Advice

Baseball is my one true love. There’s nothing quite like going to the park on a Sunday afternoon, soaking in some Rays, and watching two teams play the game that I love. But last night, Home Box Office, or HBO, if you will, may have stolen my heart in the form of Game of Thrones.... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Picks (4/26/16): NBA DFS Advice

Welcome to Two-fer Tuesday. Everything you could ever want is done with two choices! Want a new President? Two choices. Not sure what to eat for lunch? Two choices. And don’t forget the plethora of NBA Playoff games. Just two. Plus, a special presentation of Canadian basketball which starts at 6pm EST. Two-fer Tuesday is... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Baseball Lineup Picks (4/25/16): MLB DFS Advice

I realize this defeats the purpose of rolling out my picks one by one, but I suspect there will be a bajillion runs scored in Colorado on Monday night. Soft tossing lefty Jeff Locke (7.24 ERA) will face right-hander Chad Bettis (84.6% medium-to-hard contact rate) in a game that, as of this writing, Vegas hasn’t... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Picks (4/21/16): NBA DFS Advice

It’s Three Game Thursday and the stars will be out in force. All the big boys, sans Steph Curry, are primed for huge playoff performances and gobs of minutes. There are a few injuries to watch out for, so make sure to stay vigilant all the way up to gametime. In this article, I will... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Picks (4/19/16): NBA DFS Advice

Just two games on tap for the NBA Playoff schedule, but that doesn't mean there aren't many possibilities for various lineups. There is definitely a way to create a nice stars and “scrubs” lineup, soldiering the best matchups at each position. But how often do those lineups hit. I intend to have at least some... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Baseball Lineup Picks (4/18/16): MLB DFS Advice

Over the weekend, a fan got a lot of attention at the Philadelphia-Washington game. Apparently, a gentleman wrote a sign that read, “I drove 4000 miles to see Bruce Harper!” Of course, anyone who knows baseball knows that his first name is Bryce, not Bruce. Further investigation revealed that the fan actually intended to misspell... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Picks (4/12/16): NBA DFS Advice

Tuesday night has the potential to get real silly. With pretty much nothing left to play for most teams on tap and coaches opting to shut down more and more players, as well as only five games on tap, we could see a lot of weird lineups. I’m talking about teams that are short $1,000... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Baseball Lineup Picks (4/11/16): MLB DFS Advice

One week down in the 2016 MLB season and we’re already starting to see those wild price fluctuations that are oh-so rare in August. Be sure to check the names of players dropping in price. Sometimes that aging veteran at $3,200 is a better play than that red hot up-and-comer priced at $4,500. Except Tyler... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Picks (4/7/16): NBA DFS Advice

We’re running out of time! With just about 10 games left per team, the NBA regular season is fast approaching its demise. It’s sad really that we must say goodbye. Until we do, we’re going to continue to pump out amazing recommendations that feature mostly silly value plays on non-playoff teams. That’s where the true... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Picks (4/5/16): NBA DFS Advice

It was probably a good thing that the NBA did not host any matchups on Monday.

MLB DFS Lineup Picks & Sleepers - DraftKings Advice for 4/4/16

You will have to forgive me if I come off a bit out of touch with baseball today. Sunday night’s episode of The Walking Dead is still on my mind. Who did Negan kill!? Was it Glenn, Abraham, Darryll? We won’t even know for a few months. Looks like I will have to rely on... Read More

DraftKings Daily Fantasy Basketball Lineup Picks (3/24/16): NBA DFS Advice

Basketball is beginning to wind down, but that doesn’t mean that you should. There is plenty of value on the board, perhaps more so now than at any point during the season. The Nets and Pelicans aren’t the sexiest of teams, in fact they are downright ugly, but their high volume, low budget players are... Read More

Sam Nedimyer's Bold Predictions for 2016

There’s something about making bold predictions that is just plain fun. We’ve basically been given carte blanche to make 10 absurd statements, support some empirical evidence, and voila.

As if the world hasn’t gotten enough of Drake, NBA fans got more of him last night. During a throw in by Justin Holiday in Chicago’s bout against Toronto, Drake had some words for the savvy youngster and apparently got in his head. Of course ESPN had to cram that down our collective throat, so... Read More

Can you smell it? Not what The Rock is cooking but the madness that is beginning to ensue. The conference and NCAA tournaments are always a favorite of mine to watch.
